Hagelin will be available for the Golden Knights in Wednesday's NHL expansion draft, TSN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hagelin didn't live up to expectations this season for Pittsburgh, notching just 22 points over 61 games during the regular season. However, he does have a track record of production and playoff experience under his belt. The $4 million cap hit may take some of the shine off his name, but he will still likely be an attractive option up front for Vegas.

Hagelin was able to log 15 postseason contests despite a broken fibula that wasn't fully healed, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The good news for fantasy owners is that Hagelin will not need offseason surgery in order to get his leg back to 100 percent, so he should be ready to go for the 2017-18 campaign. How the winger fits into coach Mike Sullivan's plans next season remains to be seen as the 28-year-old was a healthy scratch for a handful of playoff games in favor of some of the Pens' young talent.

Hagelin scored an empty-net goal in Sunday's Cup-clinching Game 6 win over the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Hagelin only appeared in 15 games this postseason, managing a pair of goals. He was much more productive during the team's playoff run last season, but he still netted a memorable goal this time around. There is so much talent in Pittsburgh that the 28-year-old has been pushed way down the depth chart, failing to reach 30 points in back-to-back seasons. He can be a decent sniper when he's healthy, but these injuries are starting to become a major concern.

Hagelin will return to the starting lineup Saturday against the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

He's served as a healthy scratch for the first two games against Nashville. Hagelin, who will serve as a left winger on a fourth line with Matt Cullen and Patric Hornqvist, has scored one goal in 11 postseason contests.

Hagelin will remain out of the lineup for Game 2 on Wednesday against the Predators, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given the Pens' struggles in Game 1 -- despite getting the win -- it is somewhat of a surprise that coach Mike Sullivan isn't going to give Hagelin a look. The winger has been unable to recapture the magic of last season's Stanley Cup run as he has managed a mere one goal in his 11 postseason outings. Perhaps if Pittsburgh drops a game, Hagelin will get a shot, but for now, as long as the team is winning, the Swede will likely be watching from the press box.

Hagelin didn't take part in Monday's pre-game line rushes and is likely to sit out Game 1, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Patric Hornqvist (upper body) returning to action, it appears Hagelin has become the odd man out, at least for the first game of the Stanley Cup Final. Hornqvist, along with Matt Cullen and Jake Guentzel, comprised the team's fourth line in warmups.

Hagelin will be a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with Nashville, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Patric Hornqvist (upper body) cleared to return, coach Mike Sullivan will need to drop either Hagelin or Jake Guentzel from the lineup. While Sullivan declined to answer which player it might be, the Pens' optional skate might be an indication that the 28-year-old Hagelin is going to be the odd man out after he stayed on the ice late as reported by Wes Crosby of NHL.com. Compared to last season when he was the toast of the town as part of the HBK line, the winger has registered a lone goal after returning from an injury that kept him out the entire opening-round series against Columbus.

Hagelin (undisclosed) is on the ice for pregame warmups Monday, suggesting he's good to go for Game 2 against the Senators, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The speedy winger was labeled as a game-time decision heading into the contest, which isn't surprising given he's played in just five of the Penguins' 13 postseason games so far. However, the stakes are higher with just four teams left battling for the Stanley Cup, so it appears Hagelin is willing to play through what's ailing him. He took line rushes with Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) and Nick Bonino.

Hagelin (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Monday's tilt against Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

The winger has struggled with injury throughout the end of the season and the playoffs, only playing in five of Pittsburgh's 13 games so far. If he finds his way onto the ice, he isn't a huge scoring threat considering he only notched 22 points in 61 games.

Hagelin (lower body) is considered questionable for Game 2 against the Senators.

EDGE Analysis

Hagelin is dealing with what is reportedly a lower-body injury, but the winger was able to take part in three consecutive practices and claims he feels "pretty good right now". He'll likely be evaluated again after morning skate on Monday, which should provide further clarification on his availability for Game 2 later that evening.
